Hi just wondered what bits people use these days for mouthing, I have a section a , so small mouth, never liked the old fashioned breaking bits with keys on and now there are so many new styles, like sweet iron, happy mouth, peanut etc what do people recommend x
I have just started mouthing one of ours and I am old fashioned and using a bit with keys.after only having bit in for a couple of days for very short time , he sees the bit and opens his mouth and takes it on his own . He loves playing with it and I will keep using it for another week then switch to French link or sweet iron .
I use the neue schule pony bits on my sec a. Normal French links are too big for her little mouth (she is a 4.5") so the joins of the bit/link are right on the edges of her tongue. The neue schule lozenge sits centrally, and they are nice lightweight little bits.
To start with I like a happy mouth, it has a bit of give to it so is less likely to bruise a tender mouth, however once the pony has accepted the bit then I change to a loose ring french link. This has always worked well for me from 12 to 17 hands. It also take patience, little and often to start with.
I learnt from my mum and she was taught as a young girl and We always sew and old stocking or tights around a link but and soak it overnight in honey or golden syrup. The youngsters love it and for that first few weeks it really gets them mouthing the bit nicely.

Problems with swallows: I have been battling hives in my horse since April when the swallows arrived. Few weeks ago she has been injected with antimite stuff, but I still have to give her steroids to keep it under control. Absolute nightmare.
